You’re tired of cutting sheet metal by hand, but you don’t want to invest in expensive metal shears. Solution: Grizzly’s inexpensive G9947 rotary shear mounts to your bench top and cuts sheet metal up to 16 ga.
With its 11″ handle, the compact rotary shear only weighs 4 lbs. The roller can be adjusted to make either straight or curved cuts.
The shear is simple to use. From the manual:
- Raise the handle and engage the pawl in one of the ratchet notches.
- Place the sheet metal between the upper drive wheel and lower wheel.
- Pull the handle down with one hand as you feed the sheet metal with the other into the cutting wheel to begin shearing.
Pricing for Grizzly’s rotary shear starts at $21 before shipping.
